Ariel Levy Pt. 1 | The Colbert Report

Ariel Levy is such a massive hero of mine; anyone who’s spent enough time with me in any sort of genuine context knows–if not by name–how much she has informed my current feminist views and has given voice and words to things which have infuriated me since childhood.

I have written about her ideas a few times: A New Burlesque Of Parody: Combatting Raunch Culture And “Porn Chic” Through Drag And Disidentification and the infamous Porn chic for women and girls.

Beautiful moments from the interview include: “I think sex is a little more personal than playing baseball” and “There are many ways to go wild, and they don’t all involve getting implants and waxing your nether regions.” Watch part 2.
